July 4th always presents a mess for traffic. With the annual Fourth Fest happening at Bayfront Festival Park, there is some parking in the area but it is very limited. Plus it is not easy getting around and sometimes you have to be creative. The Duluth Police issued a statement for how they plan to handle traffic.
You've heard the myth about Minnesota Nice haven't you? You know what I'm talking about; folks who live in the Northland are kind, good-hearted, and never complain about anything. Well I can't argue with some elements of that but I will tell you that people in Duluth love to complain!
Getting around Duluth gets hard every year for the Grandma's Marathon Festivities. Duluth Police have released how they plan to deal with the traffic problems. They have included the race times and then the traffic closure times.
On Saturday the Fitgers 5K race gets underway about 9 am. While the race only takes up an hour or so to complete, traffic has to be diverted for the area. Duluth Police are asking for motorists to obey the detours, and do not park in the marked off areas.
The Duluth Police have such a hard job when Grandma's Marathon comes around. They do a great job, and part of it is the communication with people letting them know the changes in traffic and where to go if you want to stay out of the way.
Fitgers 5k is coming this Saturday, and you are invited to enjoy the race. This is the race that sort of starts the Grandma's Racing Schedule. There are some traffic issues, obviously you can't drive in front of Fitgers. Whether you want to see the race or are in it, here are the traffic releases from the Duluth Police.
Traffic are rightly remembered today as titans of jazz-rock and soul -- but on their 1967 debut album, 'Mr. Fantasy,' released 46 years ago this month, Steve Winwood and company were busy riding the psychedelic coattails of 'Sgt. Pepper.'
Grandma's Marathon brings money to the community, Racers to one of the most beautiful and challenging courses, people together to have fun, music.......but it also brings traffic nightmares. Here are some of the ways to get around better as streets are closed off for the marathon routes.
Just about every time we have snowy and windy conditions here in the Twin Ports, someone inevitably blurts out, "they are going to close the bridges!" And all of us who work across the bridge (Duluth or Superior side) start to panic we won't make it home. The frustrating part of this whole situation is that 99% of the time, the bridges don't close, but misinformation is spread anyway by rumors. Here's where you can go to find out for yourself.
An update on the Airport traffic situation as the construction, or Summer as we know it, continues. Starting today, you will go to a different location to drop off or pick up passengers, catch the bus or a taxi, or pick up a rental car.
